Unformatted text preview: C . Suppose [A](0) = 1 mol/l, [B](0)=[C](0)=[D](0)=[E](0)=0. What will be the final concentrations [A]( ∞ ) and [E] ( ∞ )? Answer the same question in the case where k = 0. 3. A dimerization 2A Ø A 2 is found to be a first order process. To explain this surprising result the following mechanism has been proposed: k 1 A Ø A * k 2 A * + A Ø A 2 where k 2 >> k 1 . A. Assuming that one can use the steady state approximation for A * , find [A * ] and obtain the rate expressions for [A 2 ] and [A] . B. The halflife t 1/2 of a reaction is the time required for half of the reactant (A) to disappear. What is the halflife of the above reaction?...
